What is a USDA Loan?
United States Department of Agriculture determined that rural communities with homeowners flourished more than rural communities with renters. Mortgages insured by USDA are an excellent option for first-time homeowners because of zero down payment and low mortgage insurance. With all loans, credit score is important, but USDA has the added ability to offer loans to you even if you have no credit score. It’s important to remember though, that the lower the credit score, the higher the interest you will receive. All USDA loans have mortgage insurance premiums, which protects the lender if you default.
USDA loans are for primary residence and must be a single family home. Many homes in Kailua Kona and across the state have ohana units for extended family or rentals. Homes with ohana units are excluded, so limit your home search accordingly.
First time home buyers are those who haven’t purchased a home in the past 3 years.
